This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Outlook versions prior to 2007 don't allow PST file sizes > 2GB. You can upgrade to Outlook 2007/2010 or otherwise you'll have to create a new PST file and use the new one going forward.

if you dont upgrade, splitting PSTs is the way to go. Be sure to reduce the size of your PST below 1.9GB as you might still get the occasional error. – Keltari Aug 29 '11 at 18:53

Looks like your .PST is already corrupted.

I recommend for you to run scanpst.exe, this is just to prevent you from loosing any important folders, in your PST.
